"I have a simple, childlike view of life, and I want to keep it."
Tina Turner, born Ana Mae Bullock in Nutbush, TN

"The real power behind whatever success I have now was something  I found within myself -- something that's in all of us, I think, a little piece of God just waiting to be discovered."

1971

"Sometimes you've got to let everything go -- purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true  creativity, your true self comes out."
"I am strong. I lived through a divorce, separation from my family. I never let it break me down. I’m not an alcoholic. I’ve never smoked, I’ve never done drugs. I’ve floated through the disaster of my past clean. I arrived here undamaged."
